brian-photoI am an artist & visual/art journaler. Welcome to my website!

I was raised in Montana amongst the mountains, trees, streams and rivers which gave me a love of nature.  From my father I received an appreciation for all things vintage, rusty, and old, and to be artistic.  My mother developed my love of nature and gardening.  I began my art studies in college in Montana.

I moved to Southern California and I have continued my art studies.  It was not until I found art journaling that my art blossomed and I truly deeply felt I was an artist.  I am passionate about sharing art journaling and helping others to develop as artists.   I love vintage papers, paint and ink.  I live with my partner Ed and three Maine Coon cats, Hank, Tyler Christopher and Melrose. Our cats love to sit upon my journal and feel the love as it pours out of it.

I am primarily a visual journaler.  I am trying to incorporate words more into my pages and spreads.  I tend to think of my journals as “the story of my life.”  I hope you enjoy my blog and my journals.
